The first wave of reviews for Loki season 2 hit earlier today (you can read our roundup by clicking here), but an all-important Rotten Tomatoes score has now been generated.
Love or hate the review aggregator, the site remains a deciding factor for many people when it comes to watching new movies or TV shows. In Loki's case, there's good news as it currently has a "Fresh" 81% based on 36 reviews. This means it's well above what it needs to achieve "Certified Fresh" status.
It's worth noting that many more reviews will be counted later this week and then on a weekly basis when the next five instalments are released on Disney+. With that in mind, we'd caution not putting too much stock in this score simply because it's almost certainly going to change by the time the season finale rolls around.
In contrast, Loki season 1 has a 92% score and is "Certified Fresh." With 81%, the show's second batch of episodes sits between She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (77%) and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (85%). That's not a bad place to be, though Marvel Studios may have been hoping for more.
"A masterclass in imaginative storytelling, Loki season 2 is the MCU at its best," we said in our review, "and a riveting new chapter in the Multiverse Saga that’s mind-bending, monumental, and utterly marvellous. And as a bonus, Ke Huy Quan is a scene-stealing delight!"
Will you be tuning into Loki later this week?
Loki season 2 will pick up in the aftermath of the shocking season finale when Loki finds himself in a battle for the soul of the Time Variance Authority. Along with Mobius, Hunter B-15 and a team of new and returning characters, Loki navigates an ever-expanding and increasingly dangerous multiverse in search of Sylvie, Judge Renslayer, Miss Minutes and the truth of what it means to possess free will and glorious purpose.
